It's the same as in soccer, the European championship's got a better overall level, due to not having some Asian or African teams that aren't as good as some European or American teams that don't qualify.
But I really doubt this was what Lakas meant.
The Americas are pretty close with USA, Argentina, Brazil, Puerto Rico and Dom Rep., but itīs true that if the Olympics were played with the 12 strongest teams, that most likely eight would be European, and four North/South American. Nobody from Asia, Africa or Oceania.
